it just sounds weird when they spin it like that I guess.

I am not trying to badmouth the game, I own it.

You think if the headlines read Halo 5 is the 5th best selling game of the franchise people are going to be excited or proud of that?

What can I say, I like to look at the glass half full.

The reason for that is simply because considering the current market, it's a very positive result. Hence, the positive look at it.

Yup! No matter how you spin it, the console market is slowing down in Japan. Happy it is selling decently, though. Gotto buy it sometime soon for PS4\PC.
